The World Of Social Media

The 24-year-old artist reimagined famous classical paintings in the modern world, with a highlight on technology and social media, to poke fun at what’s wrong with our world. CRUDEOIL 2.0 has a degree in Fashion Design, but in parallel to the world of fashion, he is “following an artistic path by using software such as Photoshop, Illustrator, and After Effects for the animation of images.”

“Can You Follow Me On Instagram?” A Different Way To Be Romantic Nowadays. Sad Story. The End

“My imagery was born as a critique of society, saturated with social, aesthetic canons, and appearances. This concept is reflected in my works that deal with social media as a new religion and a new creed. To express my intent, I take artworks from the past and re-contextualize them to the present day. In fact, in my works, the main character is a smartphone, my identifying mark,” the artist told Bored Panda.

The World Of Social Media

“My first inspiration is society and everything around us every day: smartphones, technology in general, social media, aesthetic canons, and trends. At the beginning of my artistic journey, I found inspiration from Christopher Boffoli and his ‘big appetites studio.’ Now, I really appreciate the works of Banksy and TvBoy.”

“Can You Hear Me?”

“I would like people who look at my artworks to think about how our lives have changed with social networks. It is a real critique, a complaint, and a sort of reflexive irony against society, using social media to express my thoughts,” CRUDEOIL 2.0 explained.

Silence

In his work, the artist talks about beauty standards, the chase for likes and follows, objectification, dependence on social media, the narcissism that comes with popularity, and other topics.

“My intent is to continue to spread these messages that they are always evolving. Every day I have a new idea of how I can make my works the best they can be.”

Reminder: “Don’t Stir Up Hatred And Don’t Be Indifferent In Front Of It.” Do Something

The decision to use classic paintings by some of the best artists through history is not accidental. CRUDEOIL 2.0 hopes to educate younger audiences about art history while expressing his opinions on the world at the same time: “The choice of using classic paintings is an attempt to spread art also among the younger generation.”

Reminder: “Don’t Hide Behind Your Armour” Express Yourself

The artist told us about the process of creating his satirical images: “I don’t have a fixed procedure. Sometimes I start with the classic painting and sometimes I start from an idea. Often the paintings inspire me and afterwards, I imagine how they can be nowadays.”

“The New Intercessor” Slaves

Started just a few months ago, CRUDEOIL 2.0 has gained almost 8 thousand followers on Instagram. The artist says he is prepared for any reaction that his controversial art might evoke.

“I am conscious that my works deal with strong themes against society and I’m ready for any reactions they may provoke in people. However, I have a lot of positive feedback because people, through my works, think about the message I would like to express.”

Plastic Surgery

When asked what he would change about the society we live in, the artist said: “I think modern society is too focused on appearances, on people’s opinion, and on getting consent. Social media has an important role in our lives, so much so that some people try to imitate the lifestyle of the most influencing users, from their aesthetic to the way they dress.”

Plastic Surgery

Finally, CRUDEOIL 2.0 had some encouraging words for any upcoming artists: “I would like to advise all upcoming artists to have the courage to express their art, whatever it may be. Art is a freedom of expression.”

CRUDEOIL 2.0 admitted that when the world goes back to normal, or at least when it’s possible, he would like to take part in a temporary exhibition or have his artwork exhibited in an art gallery.

Artist Reimagined And Illustrated 6 Movie Posters From His Favorite Films

The Revenant (2015)

According to an artist E M Biggs: “My professional art journey has been a long, winding one. I started as an animator at SCAD, eager to work my way towards Studio Ghibli. Unfortunately, the studio closed in the middle of my term. I turned my attention towards Disney, but my professors frequently had the same comments: I focused too much on detail and I was too slow. Loving detail too much to leave it behind, I transitioned to concept art.”

“Leaving SCAD after 2 1/2 years (it was a nightmare for other reasons), I returned to Cincinnati, OH. I then attended the Art Academy of Cincinnati for a year, but found that they would not help me achieve my goals. I then applied to the Columbus College of Art & Design and found the perfect fit.”

Midsommar (2019)

“As an Illustration major, I started to talk to all kinds of people to try to find my way. After years of work, I was still ‘too slow’. Unbeknownst to potential clients or businesses, I’ve struggled with severe mental illness for over a decade. These illnesses prevent me from allowing the speed that companies frequently demand. In the shadow of this, I dove deeper into detail and symbolism to make up for speed. I would pour as much significance and emotional depth into my pieces as possible, to request respect in my art, even if my strengths were in unconventional areas.”

Crawl (2019)

“I visited LA a few times, having discussions with several helpful professionals. After a particularly enlightening conversation with Casey Robin, I found a way to still be a part of the movie culture I appreciate while also indulging my love of detail. I made a list of movies in different genres and started my film poster project.”

It: Chapter One (2017)

“I’ve always thoroughly believed in creating the work that you want to be doing professionally. Therefore, while I work for the Gallery Design Studio part-time, complete pieces for various clients, and more—I create film posters on the side in the hopes of being asked to do more work I love in the future.”

Artist Uses Skills to Reimagined How Would Cartoon Characters Look In Real Life

Pink Panther

Dito Von Tease is the pseudonym of a digital artist living in Bologna (Italy), who keeps hidden his real identity. He studied in the best Italian schools of fine arts communication and design before starting his double career as an art director in important advertising agencies and as an independent digital artist.

According to an artist: “I reimagined 38 animal cartoons as living beings, using digital painting. I created a big gallery that reminds us of sweet memories from childhood. I chose them directly from the ’70s to the present, from cartoons to comics, from Italy to the rest of the world.

I tried to give them their pose, their look, their soul and the result looks like real animals cosplaying their relative cartoon character. I showed the project to my son Alessandro (4 years old) and he recognized almost all of them.”
